Bryanne Hartford’s client killed two men in front of deputies and on video. But is she guilty?
Bryanne Hartford, a Houston criminal defense attorney, deplores any form of vigilante justice. However, she takes the case because of her disdain for the death penalty and her belief that her client is mentally incompetent.
Andrew Hurst, the newly elected district attorney in Lufkin, Texas, personally thinks the woman should get a medal for killing the two men, but he is duty-bound to prosecute her for the murders.
As moral and legal issues rip the town apart, the last thing either attorney needs is a romantic involvement, especially with each other. Love could never survive the turmoil in their lives, let alone the upcoming court battle—or could it?

About the Author
The Pineywoods of East Texas have produced many things, including award winning and best-selling author John Foxjohn. Known as the master of pace, Foxjohn is considered a rising star in publishing. Not only has Foxjohn published books in six different genres, but three different ones have become best-sellers. In 2014, Foxjohn’s romantic suspense, Law of Silence, received the prestigious WMP Award of Excellence for the best book of 2014. Despite the book sales and accolades, Foxjohn says, “I’m just a country boy at heart. “I was born and raised so far back in the woods that they had to pump sunshine to us.” With little to do but hunt and fish, Foxjohn’s environment created an atmosphere that fostered imagination and dreams, something he would excel at. At the tender age of seventeen, he quit high school and joined the army. Foxjohn’s six years would see him graduate from jump school, Ranger school, and become the youngest sergeant in peacetime army. A tour of Viet Nam and Germany highlighted an extremely successful stint for Foxjohn. After an honorable discharge, Foxjohn followed that up with ten years in law enforcement, including a long tour as a homicide detective. Fulfilling a promise to his dying mother, Foxjohn graduated from college and began a new adventure of teaching and coaching football. Foxjohn had another of his childhood dreams left to accomplish. When he was twelve, he read a book about Crazy Horse. He said then that one day he would write a book about the fabled Lakota war chief. After retiring, Foxjohn became a writer, and the first book he wrote was an historical fiction titled The People’s Warrior: a book about Crazy Horse. Today Foxjohn spends an enormous amount of time traveling in Texas and across the country, signing books and talking and teaching writing groups about the craft of writing.

I am an avid reader but have never done a review before. This book changed all that. This will without a doubt be the best book published this year. I have never laughed and cried so much. There are lines in this book that I will never forget. This book may be fiction but the characters are real, the plot is real, and the suspense is a 10. This is a book that should be recommended.
COULD NOT PUT DOWN. VERY GOOD READ.
Another exceptional read by John Foxjohn! I love that the events take place in and around areas that I am so familiar with...makes it even better for me. I found that I simply could not put the book down. The book may be a fiction, but the lives of the people seem so realistic. The suspense is A-1. Just finished this one, and started on another by Mr. Foxjohn...wish I had a maid!
